Thomas Adcock’s Kolumne: Déjà Vu

Déjà Vu Thugs, Lies & Fevered Fantasies ‘The corpse of McCarthy-Hooverism still stirs’ by Thomas Adcock Copyright © 2018 – Thomas Adcock   NEW YORK CITY, near America Not so long ago, a paunchy prevaricator in Washington proposed to “make America great again,” as the slogan goes. It was the flag-waving, Jesus-jumping Cold War era of anti-communist hysteria in the United States: the perfect zeitgeist for J. Edgar Hoover to exert his racist, anti-Semitic, anti-intellectual, anti-science, anti-immigrant, authoritarian proclivities. In his official capacity as director of the Federal Bureau ofRead More
Wahlreichtum Von Felix Hofmann Wer, verehrte Freundinnen und Freunde der sich selbst wählenden Demokratie, allen Ernstes davon überzeugt ist, in den USA würden genau solche Abstimmungen abgehalten, oder gar darauf schwört, es hätte dort vor einem Jahr tatsächlich eine Präsidentschaftswahl stattgefunden, dem sei diese, kaum verschlüsselte, Bemerkung von Gore Vidal aus dem Jahre 1995 in Erinnerung gebracht: »Ob Sie es glauben oder nicht, in der großartigsten Demokratie der Weltgeschichte – der Heimat der Freiheit wie der Tapferkeit – lassen sich Wahlen still und heimlich deichseln, worüber sich Joe Kennedy immerRead More

Kolumne: Thomas Adcock: High Tide of Hypocrisy

Autumn in America, and comes now a bumper crop of bullet-ridden corpses and exposés of child rape and long-ignored lechery—accompanied by sanctimonious sympathy, a mountain of mendacity, and a horde of hypocrisy. Consider: Bang-bang and ho-hum. Machine gun massacres in October and the first part of November, in Nevada and Texas, yielded a body count of eighty-five. The carnage inspired the usual gang of cheap Washington politicians to offer “thoughts and prayers” to families mourning the loss of victims gone to Heaven (or Hell)—in lieu of common sense legislative actionRead More

Kolumne: Thomas Adcock: ‘Go to Hell’

As a member of the American journalistic fraternity, Donald J. Trump labels me a “damned dishonest” purveyor of “fake news,” in league with “crooked bad people” who clearly despise the United States. Be duly warned! As Dorothy and Scarecrow intoned whilst traipsing through a scary forest in the Land of Oz, “Lions and tigers and bears, oh my…!” Last month in Arizona, during a rip-roaring rally of his fascistic flock, the president of the United States elaborated on his dim view of the likes of myself: “I really think theyRead More

Don’t Ask! The War on American Media Reporters risk beatings by Trump’s violent minions by Thomas Adcock Copyright © 2017 – Thomas Adcock NEW YORK CITY, near America Earlier this month, a thug with buzzcut hair by the name of Greg Gianforte walked into a courtroom in the state of Montana and pled guilty to charges of beating up a newspaper reporter during a political rally. In the days between the crime at question and his courtroom appearance, voters in Montana elected Mr. Gianforte to the United States House ofRead More

Kolumne: Thomas Adcock: Banana Republic

  Banana Republic Manly Trump Plays with Missiles ‘Wonder Boy’ plays with everything else By Thomas Adcock Copyright © 2017 – Thomas Adcock NEW YORK CITY, near America      On Monday afternoon in the final week of March, Donald J. Trump transferred the lion’s share of governmental authority to an unelected, unpaid, un-vetted, and largely unknown young man wanted for questioning by the United States Senate Intelligence Committee (and likely the Federal Bureau of Investigation) about his hush-hush dealings with Russian bankers and oligarchs, and shady Kremlin operatives tiedRead More

Kolumne: Thomas Adcock: Trump’s „Fourth Reich“

SEBASTIAN GORKA, high-level White House assistant to Donald Trump, wore his Hungarian “bocskai” to the January 20 presidential inauguration balls in Washington. The braided black tunic  is popular with modern-day acolytes of Miklós Horthy, the nazi collaborationist leader whose Budapest regime saw the murders of 600,000 Jews. A medal pinned to Mr. Gorka’s tunic (close-up at right) indicates his affection for the “Order of Vitéz,” a chivalric fraternity begun by Horthy in 1920, popular once again with members of Hungary’s ultra-right political movement—the Jobbik Magyarországért Mozgalom. At the January balls,Read More

Wer hat Angst vorm Schwarzen Mann? Von „Black Lives Matter“ führt der Weg auch zu Black Comics, gegen das rassistische weiße Amerika gab es schon einmal reale „Black Panther“-Power.  In einer (bisher) auf zwölf Bände angelegten Comic-Serie interpretiert gerade der politische Publizist Ta-Nehisi Coates einen schwarzen Superhelden neu. Ein aufregendes Unterfangen, findet Alf Mayer, der sich an ein Zitat von James Baldwin erinnert fühlt: „In den Vereinigten Staaten werden Gewalttätigkeit und Heldentum gleichgesetzt, wenn es nicht um Schwarze geht.“ Wir leben in zwei großen Erzählungen, mindestens, lautet kurz gesagt Georg Seeßlens These,Read More

Klassiker-Check: George Orwell

FAKE NEWS, DOUBLE THINK UND NEWS SPEAK: ORWELLS KAMPFANSAGE AN VULGÄR-FASCHISTOIDE VERDUMMUNGSSTRATEGIEN Dass man George Orwells Romane „1984“ und „Animal Farm“ im „Orwell-Jahr“ als Schul-Lektüre las und seine Warnungen vor einem diktatorischen Überwachungsstaat intensiv diskutierte, ist nachvollziehbar. Nun scheint die Wut auf eine chauvinistische, vulgär-radikale Trump-Rhetorik einen neuen Orwell-Boom ausgelöst zu haben: Double-Speak, „Alternative Fakten“, ein mit dreisten Lügen operierender Propagandafeldzug: All diese Versatzstücke aus Trumps Horror-Ideologie erinnern an Orwells düstere „1984“-Dystopie. In den USA und hierzulande sind Orwell-Titel wieder auf den Beststellerlisten vertreten, aber auch Romane wie Philip K.Read More

Georg Seeßlen: Trump! POPulismus als Politik

Der Volksheld als Medienfigur – von Georg Seeßlen. Das ist schon immer seine Stärke gewesen, wie Georg Seeßlen die Populärkultur und ihre Bilder, Mythen, Verbiegungen, Träume und Versprechungen zu analysieren und verknüpfen versteht. Gäbe es jemanden, der ihn noch nie gelesen hat, wäre dieses schmale, pralle Buch eine idealtypische Empfehlung. 140 Seiten lesbare, erkenntnisreiche Lektüre – viel mehr muss man über Trump nicht sagen und nicht wissen. (Natürlich doch, wir empfehlen auch ausdrücklich our own Thomas Adcock nebenan.) Georg Seeßlen analysiert in seinem neuen, aktuellen Buch Donald Trump als Produkt derRead More

Buch der Stunde Richard Condons Bestseller „Botschafter der Angst“ (The Manchurian Candidate) von 1959 – von Alf Mayer. Unvorstellbar wäre noch vor zwanzig Jahren gewesen, wie gerade in diesen Wochen sämtliche Archetypen des Kalten Krieges auf den Kopf gestellt werden, wie ausgerechnet die US-Partei der Kommunistenfurcht im Namen der internationalen Geschäftsmacherei jahrzehntelang gepflegte Feindbilder weghext. Noch nie hat sich ein Politiker so offen – und folgenlos – dem Verdacht ausgesetzt, unter dem Einfluss einer fremden Macht zu stehen, wie der vollkommen schamlose Donald Trump das gerade tut.

Why My East Texas Neighbors are Voting for Trump It’s not because they’re stupid rednecks. Joe R. Lansdale Voting for Trump is about being part of a large reality show. Really. The general view of the non-Trump supporter is that those who have chosen to vote for him are rednecks with 12 teeth, six of them in their coat pocket, and it’s possible those teeth might be on loan from someone else. The majority of these Trump supporters are listed primarily as White Uneducated Voters, which is code for “stupidRead More
